DevOps, Cloud, Automation and more! birds-of-a-feather session at Open Source Bridge
Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

Join us at Open Source Bridge for lightning talks and discussions on exciting topics in devops best practices, cloud infrastructures (e.g. VMware Cloud Foundry, Rackspace Cloud, Amazon Web Services, openstack, etc), and tools (e.g. Puppet, Chef, etc).

This BoF will be a great way to meet fellow practitioners and experts building the tools and platforms of the future. You’ll be able to find out what cool things others are doing and share your ideas.

If you’d like to give a short talk, 3-15 minutes, please prepare and mention it at the beginning of the meeting so we can add you to the agenda. We’ll spend the rest of the time in open discussions, which will be awesome.

Expect to meet engineers from Puppet Labs, VMware, RackSpace Cloud, openstack and other organizations in this industry. There will also be swag, like books and t-shirts.

The Portland DevOps User Group and the Portland AWS User Group meet regularly to discuss these sorts of topics, see http://pdxdevops.org/ and http://pawsug.janrain.com/ for details.

IMPORTANT: If you don’t already have a ticket for the Open Source Bridge conference, you’ll need to either buy one or register for a free “Community Pass” that will let you into the Friday unconference, Hacker Lounge and the evening BoFs: http://osbridge.eventbrite.com/

Clark Boylan from the OpenStack Foundation will talk about a jenkins automation tool written in python called jenkins-job-builder or jjb. http://ci.openstack.org/jenkins-job-builder/

Bio: Currently an Infrastructure Engineer at the OpenStack Foundation, Clark is a core member of OpenStack's infrastructure team where he helps build and run OpenStack's developer tools. When not tending to the robot test army, Clark can often be found brewing beer and smoking brisket in his brother's back yard.

Abstract: Continuous integration is great, it provides up to the minute news onyour silly mistakes. Thankfully it is relatively easy to start runningtests continuously. Install a Jenkins server, configure some jobs, then watch the little red balls turn green. Unfortunately the "configure some jobs" step can get complicated when it becomes "configure a useful number jobs".

To fix this problem we have developed a tool called Jenkins Job Builder (JJB) which uses a simple, easy to read language built on yaml to configure jobs. It supports templating, macros, and best of all you can edit your jobs in a text editor. Since jobs are stored in human readable text files you can also track all of your jobs in your favorite version control system. I will run us through installation, configuration, and job building with JJB and have us all free of the Jenkins web UI for job configuration.

Casey Bisson from Joyent will present on what SmartOS can do with containers:

Title: Scaling Docker deployments from laptop to cloud

Abstract: Docker on a laptop is easy, but Docker in the cloud is hard. What makes that transition so hard, and what can we do about it? How does this challenge affect the hosting infrastructure and application design? Casey will share lessons learned so far and further questions uncovered in Joyent’s work to build support for Docker in public and private cloud environments (including the open source http://github.com/joyent/sdc and https://github.com/joyent/sdc-docker).

Bio: Casey Bisson has done time as a systems engineer, software engineer, writer, librarian, open source founder, information architect, and director of engineering for Gigaom prior to joining Joyent as the product manager leading development of SmartDataCenter for container-optimized on-premises and hybrid clouds. He may be color blind, but he compensates with a wardrobe of clashing patterns.

We have a speaker and a half for this meeting with a focus on windows.

Aaron Jensen: Aaron discovered programming over 14 years ago, and has never looked back. He specializes in making developer-focused tools and automating everything he can. He's spent most of his career working with Microsoft technologies, but did run his own OS X server for several years, so knows Perl, PHP, and Ruby on Rails exist. For almost 7 years he has worked for WebMD Health Services. He is currently obsessed with PowerShell and weeps whenever he sees a batch script or someone using cmd.exe. His open-source project Carbon, a PowerShell module for automating the configuration of Windows servers and workstations, has been downloaded over 2,000 times, probably by the same person. He loves chocolate, movies, video games, table-top games, TV, books, and using movie quotes in situations only he understands. He hates yard work, taking out the garbage, owning a house, and his therapist, but probably not in that order. He lives in Beaverton with his wife, two kids and the money he is saving for his children's future therapy bills. You can watch him remain silent on Twitter @splatteredbits.

Topic: Piloting DSC at WebMD Health Services

In Q2 2014, we piloted Desired State Configuration at WebMD Health Services. Come learn about our DSC authoring platform and patterns, security, how we use DSC to configure applications on developer computers, configuration deployment, and lessons learned."

Nick Chappel (who everyone should know at this point) may also be giving a brief talk on building windows flavored vagrant machines.

2) "Creating Efficient Docker Images" by Isaac Stefanek

Docker can do many great things for the continuous integration and delivery process. One of the benefits that can be achieved using Docker is speeding up build and deploy times. Creating Docker files that maximize this benefit can take some work, especially if you are dealing with a bloated technology stack. We'll take a look at some common best practices that will have your Docker builds running at warp speed. The examples will be focused on building NodeJS applications, but many of the concepts will be universal for any Dockerized app.

Colin Hom from CoreOS

Colin will showcase how CoreOS deploys production Kubernetes clusters on AWS and the open-source tooling around this process. Kube-aws built around the idea of "cluster artifacts" and is designed to be secure, auditable and reproducible. A simple templating system is leveraged to generate cluster configuration as a set of declarative configuration templates that can be version controlled, audited and re-deployed. Since the entirety of the provisioning is by AWS CloudFormation and cloud-init, there’s no need for external configuration management tools on your end. Batteries included!

Join us for the June meeting of PdxDevOps.

Agenda:

Speaker: Chris Roberts

Topic: SparkleFormation and orchestration APIs

Summary: SparkleFormation is a Ruby based DSL to programmatically build templates for cloud orchestration APIs. It even has a companion CLI tool for interacting with remote providers. This talk will give a brief history on how SparkleFormation came into existence, its evolution to becoming the library and application it is today, and an overview of the things possible with SparkleFormation. Once a common foundation has been laid, we'll dive in a bit deeper to examine some non-trivial use cases touching on nesting, graphing, planning, cross provider support/interactions (AWS CFN isn't the only rodeo in town), integrating Serverspec via callbacks, and how sparkle packs can delegate infrastructure composition across teams. If there's still time and interest after all this, we can touch on why CFN is currently the best orchestration API, why CFN sucks, what's great and horrible about other orchestration APIs, why you should have an "infrastructure repository", the absurdity of humans composing documents in serialization formats, and anything else people want to talk about.

Speaker: Eric Maxwell

Summary: Eric will take us through chef's new offering: Habitat. Habitat is written in rust. Habitat is a new approach to automation that focuses on the application instead of the infrastructure it runs on. With Habitat, the apps you build, deploy, and manage behave consistently in any runtime — metal, VMs, containers, and PaaS. You'll spend less time on the environment and more time building features.

Name: E. Dunham (https://twitter.com/QEDunham) Topic: Automating more of the things

One aspect of DevOps is that one person can accomplish multiple peoples' worth of work by delegating tasks to other people or systems. I'll introduce you to some of the systems that the Rust and Servo developers delegate community management tasks to, and show you how they can be useful in more conventional settings.

edunham is the "DevOps Engineer" for Mozilla Research.

Jesse Dearing (https://twitter.com/JesseDearing)

Topic: Failure and RCAs: A Love Story
I love failure! I don't love to bathe in the tears of engineers but I love understanding how the systems that run our world fail. Everything from a failed hardware component to a human mistake. I love reading RCAs like murder mysteries. I will cover failure, how to learn from it, and preventing it. I will cover tools, processes, and techniques for reviewing and learning from failure without making people cry.

Jesse Dearing is a Lead Site Reliability Engineer at InVisionApp where he wrangles databases and builds tools to manage them. Jesse likes to learn how languages connect to other systems. Jesse likes making everything a Bash one-liner and is his own chaos monkey as a result. When he's not picking apart systems and automating them, he enjoys riding bikes, reading, and spending time with family.

JobOps: Landing the Right DevOps Role for You

The types of DevOps teams and the work found within them are as diverse as the varying definitions of "DevOps" itself. This presents a tricky two-way challenge for both candidates and hiring managers. In this talk, you'll gain insight into what DevOps hiring managers are hoping to understand when they read your resume and cover letter, how to paint a clear picture of your experience and skillset throughout the interview process, and just as importantly--how to discern the unique DevOps flavor of the team you're applying for, to determine if it's truly a good fit for you, too.

Kate Taggart has managed a variety of engineering teams spanning the breadth of the dev-to-ops spectrum. Currently an engineering manager at HashiCorp, Kate has also previously managed teams at New Relic and Simple. When it comes to organizational hiring practices, Kate is a vocal advocate for increased transparency, quantitative metrics, and continual self-reflection and improvement.


Tools Don't Matter

Have you ever watched a super inspiring conference talk about some uber tool that was going to solve all of your problems? Have you ever tried to apply those tools/techniques to your environment only to run into a million corner cases and ultimately, failure? Do words like "enterprise", "compliance", and "legacy" stand between you and all that stuff those talks made look so easy?

In "Tools Don't Matter", we're going to get to the root cause of "these tools can never work for my use cases" syndrome. The goal is to equip you with a skill set to evaluate and apply whatever tools and process successfully in your organization (yes, even "legacy" environments). Our case study is an organization that went from ~1 feature release a year in Q1, to >100 feature releases in Q4 of the same year, all while keeping an almost identical tool chain.

pdxdevops: Portland DevOps -- Virtualized dev environments with Vagrant, and more
Puppet Labs on NW Park (old office)

TOPICS: * Igal Koshevoy will talk about using Vagrant to manage virtualized development environments. Using this open source tool, you'll be able to give developers fully configured virtual machines containing all the services, libraries and dependencies they need to get started immediately. These virtual machines are provisioned using Chef, Puppet or shell, letting you give devs the same stack as the one you're using for your production environment.

Igal Koshevoy will present "Devops case study: Open Source Bridge", describing his work on creating and maintaining reliable, vendor-neutral infrastructure for a regional open source conference running many custom apps. He'll discuss architecture, provisioning, automation, development, deployment, monitoring, migrations and disaster recovery. He will also give a walkthrough the AutomateIt recipes that setup and manage the servers (available as open source at http://github.com/igal/osbp_automateit), with more of a focus on explaining how these are structured rather than on the tool, so you can more easily reuse the ideas with your favorite automation tool.

Other presentations, lightning talks and discussion topics will also be covered.
